May 2019’s Featured CESN Member: David Pacifico

David Pacifico (Ph.D) is an anthropological archaeologist and ethnographer who has taught and published on ancient neighborhoods as well as the public value of archaeology. Much of his fieldwork has taken place in Peru via the Proyecto Arqueologico del Interior de Casma – Casma Hinterland Archaeological Project (PAIC-CHAP). However, following short experiences with archaeological projects studying New Orleans and Chicago and after teaching for more than a year on urban anthropology in the US and France, David began working toward a long-term goal of running a local community-based archaeological project in his own community as General Director Milwaukee Community Archaeology Project. At UWM, Pacifico serves as an Assistant Professor in Art History and directs the Emile H. Mathis Gallery and UWM Art Collection.
